African landscapes on silk-cotton scarves

In February 2012, the label 'Larogy' by Austrian designer Martina Rogy (studied at Esmod in Paris and Berlin) presented the new foulard collection created in collaboration with artists who contributed the motifs for the silk-cotton scarves.

Sophie Liebich for example was inspired for her African landscape impressions from the country's positive sides which exist beneath the mediated pictures of civil war and hunger. Sophie Liebich reclaims with her work - by showing a prosperous, green landscape instead of negative images, the viewer as responsible part into the perception of all facets of reality.

"Ein Kontinent, der viel zu oft auf das Negative reduziert wird, hat mir bessere Werte gezeigt. Der Mensch soll dabei nicht ausgeblendet werden, sondern fungiert als beteiligter und verantwortlicher Zuseher, als periodischer Teil des Ganzen." explains Sophie Liebich on
